Haul time

Bonjour my lovlies

Today I have a haul post for you. I haven't done one for about three weeks, so these are from several shopping trips combined, although I've separated the things I got today :)

Top L-R: Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream, Strawberry Ice Cream, Cobalt, Collection 2000 5 day Wear French White and Sparkle Top Coat, Nails Inc Electric Teal and Candy Orange, George at Asda Pink Glitz and Dazzle
Bottom: Sally Hansen Maximum Growth, Barry M Nail Effects 315 and 314, W7 Earthquake White (Crackle) and Gold Dazzle, O.P.I Wing It! and Parlez-Vous O.P.I?, China Glaze Peace on Earth, G at Matalan Purple Plum, and some decals from Ebeast underneath.
Today's haul: Pink slim baskets from Poundland 3 for 99p or something, Acrylic paints for when I eventually get around to trying freehand painting also Poundland, Accessorize Pink Spice (wearing now, amazeballs) £4 Superdrug, 2true Fast Dry Colour Quick shade 4 and 9, Revlon Gold Get 'Em £2 odd in Savers, Beauty UK Frozen Kingdom (at last, hurrah!) £1.99 Superdrug, 2true Glossywear Shade 45, the 3 2true ones are usually £1.99 but 3 for £5 in Superdrug.

And some non-nail related gumf if you're interested...
Hair things: Slide £1, Flower £2, Band £2.50 all Primarni, Bows (on little kirby grips) £1.50 Superdrug, Bracelets £2.50 Primarni.
Eyelashes £1.99 Savers, Natural Collection Eye pallets Mink/Sable and Blackcurrent/Violet £1.99 Boots, Collection 2000 Crystal Gloss Lipstick Latte Crystal £2.49 Boots*, Collection 2000 Extreme 24 Hour Felt-Tip Eye Liner Black £2.99 (I think) Superdrug, Maybelline Great Lash Mascara £2-odd Savers
*Boots have a 3 for 2 offer across all their make-up, so effectively one of the eye pallets was free.

So yeah, I spent waaaay too much money today. Ooops.

I don't usually buy the hair pretties and things, but I'm going to a very important wedding in a few weeks time and I have no idea what to do with my hair, so I got a few things that match my outfit so I can have a play around. And the bows I just liked and they were half price...

But, now I really need to go on a no-spend, at least until the end of the month. We're travelling away to the wedding and we need to save money for that, plus I've already filled up two of the little pink baskets with polishes I've not even worn yet, so along with swatching and a possible spreadsheet (can I? Does it make me a nerd? I do love a good spreadsheet) that should keep me busy. I started this with 27(?) polishes less than 2 months ago, and now I have at least 85, probably closer to 100... So unless I stumble upon one of my major lemmings (basically anything holo lol) my purse is staying shut... Wish me luck...
